Question about Palm Cell Phones

1 Answer


I dropped my treo 750wx and the screen has a number of serious cracks.  It still works a little bit for touch, but I cannot get it to accurately dial a number using a touch dial pad and when I try to call up my notes, I have to use commands and the middle button to scroll.  Do I need to replace the entire phone or do you think I can replace just the screen/digitizer?  I do not see any spots-or missing areas.  Everything appears to be like it was except my start button is now on the top of the screen instead of on the lower left.

    I think you are correct about the start button. I do have a problem with the green phone button and the little wind button being non-responsive so I am not sure what to do or what is going on with it. I hate to spend a lot of money since I am on alltel and they will be merging with verizon, supposedly by July 1 and my plan price will go way up.

You can replace the lcd screen and digitizer.

Its about $40 US on ebay. Try searching treo 750wx screen/digitizer/touch screen, etc. Also i tried searching treo 750wx but it didn't work, I suspect the 750 to be the same as the wx, but you might wanna make sure with the seller incase (Ask seller a question link is on the listing, or click their username and go to their profile and click on contact)

    Also, isnt the start menu supposed to be on the top left? It is on my htc touch diamond (runs Windows Mobile 6.1)

  • Denis K. Feb 28, 2009

    You can try opening it up, or maybe lightly vacuuming, without opening it up (key word lightly, don't directly put the whole vaccum on the phone leave a 'safe' gap in case :P) it in case some debris from before, or during the drop got in the buttons, but is highly unlikely. If you open it up, you could check if it looks broken/damaged on the inside, more specifically on the board that has the sensors for the broken button(s).

    If your looking to get another phone instead, on a different carrier, I would suggest you get the HTC touch pro2, or if your ok without a physical keyboard and using the on screen one, get a HTC touch diamond2. But they're not out yet, they will be soon though. No matter what you do, don't get an iPhone, you can't replace their battery once it dies and their only good for eye candy..(also you can't multitask, which you can on windows mobile phones)

    Let me know on what your going to do, incase I can be of anymore assistance!

    Also theres already a 'green phone' button function on the phone right? Like when you tap a contact, its the equivilent of the green button anyway, so I guess you can live without it..not sure what you mean by the wind button..whats it do?

Palm treo 700w

I was able to find many parts for my 700w on ebay including keyboards. You should be able to find what you need too and the keyboard is a sinch to remove and replace onew you have the two needed tools to open your phone, the T-6 screw driver and a cover removal tool that help unsnap the cover which is a bear to do without the tool. Do an ebay search to "Treo Cover tools" or "Touch screens for Treo 650" and you should find all you need.
